|2013 in pictures!|
For 2014 I want to continue with my frugal, use-it-up ways as much as possible. At the very least I want to start with fabric that's already in the totes, continuing to challenge myself to make things work. Last year I made a couple quilt tops from the scrap bin (not finished yet) and I definitely want to do more of that as it is very freeing and playful.
Something not totally obvious from these pictures--I didn't follow very many patterns in 2013. I kind of made it up as I went along. I really like the direction my quilts are going in though. It feels like I've crossed through some sort of mental roadblock and my quilts are feeling more and more personal all of the time. It's such a thrill to see more personality and character, more whimsical details, intriguing (to me) color combinations and the different layouts come alive right before my eyes. Maybe it's my imagination, but my quilts seem more vibrant than they ever have before.
Now if I could whittle down my stack of quilt tops so I could see for sure! I don't dare take a break from the creating though as it would no doubt put my imagination, motivation and inspiration in the deep freeze. Hope everyone has a great quilty New Year!
